From Projekt’s Sam Rosenthal. Hello and welcome to the ProjektList. This is my somewhat weekly round-up of Projekt-related press, streaming, and concerts.
For the video of Steve Roach’s “Structures from Silence (excerpt)“ (from the new Essentials release), I edited a remix of the 1987 video. Watch on Steve’s YouTube Channel. Download the album at Projekt’s Bandcamp, or stream at Spotify or Pandora. Visit this Facebook post for 40 photos from Steve’s recent concert weekend in Tucson
The second video from Deepspace’s The Blue Dunes is live at YouTube: “An Unexpected Shelter (excerpt).” The album is name-your-price at the Projekt Bandcamp page. John W. Patterson EER-MUSIC.com writes: ” I have been listening to Deepspace (Mirko Ruckels) since his 2006 release The Barometric Sun. His sound has greatly evolved since then but the quality of his ambient works has only improved over time. This is one of my favorite ambient releases of 2022. It is very calming and meditative and could easily be put on endless loop for a wonderful aural space. “Emptiness” is well worth the price of admission – but every track is wonderful. This belongs in the collection of every fan of beatless, non-rhythmic, enveloping soundscapes type of ambient music. Well done, Mirko!”

Is it to early to Xmas? In 2021 the remastered LPs of Projekt’s 1995 Excelsis compilation arrived soooooo late that we didn’t have a chance to promote them. So here we are, bright and early with our pre-Xmas cheer. Available as a remastered LP + CD. The LP is available in two lovely colors, 250 per edition, from Projekt’s website and Bandcamp page and also from the European Webstore.
